Upper extremity deep vein thrombosis: a complication of an indwelling peripherally inserted central venous catheter.

Carr PJ, Rippey JCR. Upper extremity deep vein thrombosis: a complication of an indwelling peripherally inserted central venous catheter. Clinical Case Reports. 2015;3(3):170-174.

We report a case of peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC)-associated deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Ultrasound images and video of subclavian thrombus are presented. PICC line-associated DVT, particularly in cancer patients is not uncommon. Point-of-care Emergency Department ultrasound can readily diagnose this complication and device removal is not always necessary.
